 I got this off Amazon and used it to line the inside of the side panel on a Husqvarna I restored...
https://www.amazon.com/Barrera-adhesiva-respaldo-Thermo-Tec-13575-12/dp/B00029KC2K/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2JU329CBD3ZV4&dchild=1&keywords=self+adhesive+heat+shield&qid=1595677049&sprefix=Self+Adheasive+heat%2Caps%2C170&sr=8-3



Since you already made an inner pan for the bag I would just pop rivet an aluminum plate to the bottom of the bag through the inner pan then apply the Thermo-Tec to that.

Thanks SnoDrtRider I have seen that stuff before as I guess anyone who's been around bikes long enough has. What I dont like about that for this application is the panniers are flexible and will flex a little a lot. Im thinking over time dust will work its way in to the adhesive as it flexes and once in a little it just keeps working in.

Actually now that I think about it Im still favouring separating the hot and cold air however if it turns out the checker plate is getting to hot and radiating heat then a layer of that or similar on the smooth side of the plate would be the answer.

When you don't have it you want it need it  when you have it you don't feel as if you need it.

My smart relay turned up looks promising nice BMW box



Looks a little exposed without a backing



It has to fit on and around the mirror stalk like this



A little tapped plate like this to hold the switch on

When I do it up it tightens on like this in the wrong spot






Bend the tab out to move the top of the switch in



Now it does up in the right place but I didn't like how the metal tab cracked as it bent it that metal is  hard and inflexible. I'm going to proceed as if it's going to hold but there will always be dought. If it lets go a few cable ties or tape will get me home.



The next problem is what to do about the exposed board. As a coating I'm hoping this lanolin spray will protect it when it drys.





Then I discover with the fixing tab bent in the plastic protrudes beyond the mirror stem mount. Has to be dremilled down to make it flush 



To cover in the back and give it some protection I cut some soft rubber hose and poke it in



It looks the part but the switches are wobbly as you press them in not guided at all. Not BMW quality hope it works.

As a refresher on the where I left the bike with a pull through and temporary DRL wiring;

*Originally Posted by Tioli [+]
It's time to put the bike back together but the really and switch for the DRL has not arrived. It's a lot of mucking around taking the crash bar off and it's not one of those things that should be taken on and off all the time.



First is finding a passage from back to front.



It looks clear along the frail rail.



DRL's, connectors and pull through wire



Run the wire from battery box out the right side



The passage is open enough



Over the fuel line I think that is. This will keep it away from the outside of the frame rail there as it's not covered there and would be seen



Up the frame



You won't see that when together



And out it pops near the head stem



I did test pull it through and it worked fine. When the really arrives I just have to attach it and pull through



The DRL attached and how the wire wants to sit which is out of the way




Join the plugs to the DRL




Make up a temporary power surely to the aux power plug



Plugged in



Strangely the power plug fits perfectly in there when not in use. Someone was thinking ahead.



It's dusk at the moment but you can see the DRL's are brighter than the head light DRL and only draw 5w

Re wired the DRLs to run a wire down to the battery



Taped the DRL and switch wire up and bent round the pull through wire





Bit of a giggle as you pull



And out it comes

The instructions are clear enough. I don't know what the top picture is about and yellow black first relay is the bottom switch. For the lights I made earth blue and yellow positive.



The wire for second really I didn't use so isolated



The rest were soldered covered and taped together



It all tuckes away



Power and fuze wire goes back. I changed the 20A fuze for a 5A one as the DRLs are only 5W



Earth wire right round back



Bit of double sided tape on the relay to hold in place and take some vibration out



It workes. When turned on it stays on, lights up as soon as you press the starter, goes out about 20 seconds after the motor is turned off.

Now all I have to remember is turn off when dark.
